|Hello fellow vagabonds and would be gypsies,
I'm studying in HCMC next month and I'm curious to know if anyone has had any experience with that city. Because I will be there for several months I would like to volunteer or work at an NGO. Is anyone familiar with an organization that would be interested in having help? I'm not particularly interested in tefl, but it's a possibility. My Vietnamese is limited, but it's better than most travelers'. I lived in Hanoi for about 4 months last semester.
If anyone is in HCMC and wanting company during their stay I will be living there from Feb. till May. I enjoy meeting and traveling with new people so feel free to send me a message and it will be a pleasure to meet you.
Also, since HCMC is huge and buzzing with life does anyone know of any fun or laid back places to hang out or socialize. Any hot spots worth checking out in the city or the hinterland?
Any advice for backpacking in the highland area or around the coast?
what else what else what else....
I guess that's it for now.
